    Poor Ramon Ramirez. This guy has pitched well enough to be 3-0 but the freaking bullpen has blown three runs leads in both of his starts.

    I said two months ago that there was no sense in bringing Burton back this season.

    Bray & Lincoln getting loose. Why not use the new kids?

    Agree that Burton does not have the stamina.....to go 2 in a row....you have other options. I don't mind him coming back....it's using him this much that is disturbing.

    Yep. Two blown saves by the bullpen in the last 10 games and both were games Ramirez deserved to win. I hope the end result is the same tonight as that previous blown save on Aug. 30th... a REDS win
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Burton really struggling to hit his spots. Let's see if he can put Braun away at 0-2.

    Burton allowed 12 earned runs all season before his injury; He's allowed seven in his four appearances since the injury. IF they were going to bring him back they should have only let him pitch twice a week. An oblique injury for a pitcher can be rough.
